Examination information / points
The verbal and quantitative section of the GMAT are a Computer Adaptive Test (CAT). In other words, you will only ever see one question on the computer screen taken from a large pool of questions varying in content and difficulty level. Every question must be answered and it is not possible to recall and therefore correct a question. Depending on your answer the difficulty level of the following question changes. Should a question have been answered incorrectly then the next question is automatically an easier one. If the following answer is correct, the difficulty level will increase again. This type of testing tries to understand individual capacity as precisely as possible. The appraisal of the number of points is calculated on the basis of a complex algorithm from the ETS (Educational testing System).
